Hive Supply

COVID-19 Update to Hive Supply Operations

The Hive Supply, our campus-based food pantry, is still open for student use during this time. To comply with current recommendations for  social distancing we have created pre-packed brown paper bags with items from the Hive Supply as a grab and go option. Students able to pick a bag of food items on campus either in the atrium, outside of the Hive Supply (College Center 407) or in front of the Heintz Center Hive Supply location (H1128B).

 

See more information on Campus and Community Resources during the COVID-19 crisis.

RCTC Cereal Drive

In efforts to reduce food insecurities across the RCTC campus; staff, faculty, and community members came together to raise 700 boxes of cereal for the RCTC Hive Supply.  In celebration of collecting 700 boxes of cereal, Student Life put together a Domino-style “Domino-Run” where all the boxes were lined up and tipped one-by-one.
